is managing editor of politics.com, and political analyst karen finney and my right handman, nbc political director mark murray, he's here. let's start with a little old poll junkie, okay? quinnipiac came out this morning, chris cillizza, and, you know, it shows the same thing on the national polls. the president's vulnerable, but who can beat him? he's ahead of all the major candidates including romney. >> he is, and do you know what's fascinating, chuck, if you look at obama's numbers in a vacuum, you know, he's really v lly vule on the economy. >> there was a "washington post" poll. and the "washington journal" poll, go ahead. >> you look at him a vacuum and say, it will be trouble. but in ohio in the national polling, you are kind of like ultimately the races aren't about president obama versus president obama or president obama versus a generic republican it's about president obama versus one of the republican candidates none of whom at the moment with the possible exception of michele bachmann is making anyone in the republican party even all that excited. >> that's the puff argument
she would be free right now if they had done that. reporting live in orlando, i'm karen brown, back to you. >> that's one thing we're going to be asking two of our guests. was today's verdict the result of great work by casey anthony's defense team or a failure on the part of the prosecution? we are joined by a couple experts to talk about that. debbie is a former prosecutor who tried felony cases including murders and jeffrey is an experienced criminal defense and trial attorney with mccarthy, sweeney, and harkaway. before we bring up the point karen brought up, just your general reaction, i mean casey anthony was found not guilty on the strongest charges against her. what was your reaction? >> a classic case of reasonable doubt. i mean in the words of johnny cochran. if the evidence doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> you have a circumstantial case, lesli. they couldn't figure out various aspects and pin the blame on who did what and blame allegedly to the grandfather, he abused her as a child. we didn't know who killed the baby. we didn't know who put the baby in the swamp. >> a
, not a speech, a real plan. and he hasn't. >> i'm joined now by msnbc political analyst pat buchanan and karen finney, good saturday morning to both of you. pat, let's start with you, the president, is he the only adult in the room after a week of talks? we have no progress. >> i think he's going to get some progress if you read the papers this morning. the president, i think is coming around, he realizes now he's not going to get any tax increases, he's going to get his debt ceiling i think even out of the house. he's going to get some budget cuts, it's not going to be a big deal, but i think a lot of the drama is being drained out of this because i don't think there's going to be a halt to the increase in the debt ceiling, richard, i think it's going to be resolved. >> karen, what do you think? we have reports late in the week, house majority leader cantor saying that the president could be losing a little bit of his patience, is he losing some of it? >> i think america is losing it's patience, i think the president is kind of channeling that for us. i wanted to correct one thing that pat sa
morning. >> this time we'll go ladies first, karen. weak job growth isn't just something that happened last month. is the president realistic in blaming it on the debt cerealing? >> i don't think he was blaming it all on the debt ceiling, but the crisis the republicans brought us into this debate has not been he'llful. for several months now i work with some of the smaller and larger banks, and they have been saying for a while kind of raising their hand about concerns that even this sort of game of chicken is very dangerous for them because from a business perspective they can't wait until august the 2nd. they have to responsibly plan ahead of time. i think it is not just that, but it certainly contributes to it. the other thing the president made very clear is in addition to these conversations there are some things that congress could do right now as he has pointed out in terms of infrastructure as well as extending the payroll tax that could actually bring some relief right now. >> all right. but what would you have wanted to hear from the president on the jobs numbers, karen? >> i
charges in the case. and as karen brown reports, anthony's time in jail may be over momentarily. >>> reporter: casey anthony could walk away a free woman this morning. >> we, the jury, find the defendant not guilty. >> reporter: just two days after being acquitted in the murder of her daughter caylee, the 25-year-old will be sentenced on four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators. each charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison. but since anthony has already spent nearly three years behind bars, she could be released for time served. >> justice for caylee! >> reporter: because of the high-profile nature of the case, the court will take extra precautions to keep anthony safe upon her release. >> let's be honest. she is widely despised seemingly by most of america. if you retwitter and facebook and listen to commentary. >> reporter: but casey anthony's future outside of jail is unclear. she will need to find a place to live and get a job. but some say an interview or book deal could fetch a half million dollars or more. >> this story has demonstrated its abilit

'll watch this in the hours ahead. >>> let's bring in our mega panel, karen finney, republican strategist susan del percio and our d.c. insider jimmy williams. welcome, guy, from across the country and across our new york studio. susan's in the isolation booth. not to have an unfair advantage. i want to put up a couple quotes from alan desch rshowitz. a piece entitled "the system worked." he said a legally proper result may not be the same as a morally just result's in such a case, justice has not been done to the victim but the law has prevailed. then dershowitz had another line. a criminal trial is not a search for truth. scientists search for truth, philosophers search foremore rate. a criminal trial searches for one result. proof beyond a reasonable doubt. karen finney is professor dershowitz giving us the right big picture? >> it is one of the big pictures. a couple of thing. a lot of people compareds they case to the o.j. simpson case, which i really take issue with and i'm going to go on a side bar about that for a second, because we have to remember, for those who particularly liv
weeks of drama, jurors are almost ready to decide the fate of casey anthony. karen brown reports for wjz, closing arguments in the high- profile murder case starts tomorrow morning. >> reporter: casey anthony's defense attorneys have one last chance to explain to the jury what they didn't make good on their promises. in opening statements, they told the 7 women and 5 men that anthony's 2-year-old daughter accidently drowned. but in 33 days of testimony, never offered firm proof to support that claim. they also told the jury that anthony behaved badly when her daughter was missing because she was sexually abused by her father. but he denied it. >> i said for several days they needed to throw a hail mary. and every time they seemed to have attempted that, they fumbled. >> reporter: still, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. they contend 25-year-old anthony suffocated her daughter. but offered only circumstantial evidence. no dna on the body and no proof of how she died. what they have going for them is anthony he's erratic behavior in the weeks caylee was missing. her lies, her
